PMI Analyzer Comparisons?

Current PMI gun broke. We had a Thermo Scientific XRF, XLT I think it was. Anyhow they discontinued support for it so I was wondering if anyone has seen any comparisons? I got price quotes on a new XRF gun from thermo and another from bruker. Any other brands worth looking into, or I should stay away from? Thanks in advance for any info given.
